Senate Forum for Policy Research

Under the Senate Administration Strategic Plan a proposal was envisaged to formulate a Forum consisting of the sitting and retired senators/ MPs, under which a Think Tank of parliamentarians was further proposed by the Chairman Senate.

The Senate Forum for Policy Research is guided by rules 269- rule 276 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the Senate, 2012, which relate to the composition, tenure and functioning of the Forum.

The main purpose of this Forum is to assist and guide the Members and the Secretariat of the Senate and recommend policy options/ solutions on questions of public importance.
